He Named Me Malala

PG-13, 2015, 87 min.

This film is an intimate portrait of Malala Yousafzai, who was shot in the head and wounded after Taliban gunmen opened fire on her and her friends’ school bus in Pakistan’s Swat Valley because she spoke out on behalf of girls’ education. From her beginnings as an educational activist in Pakistan, Yousafzai has since emerged as a leading campaigner for the rights of children worldwide and in 2014, became the youngest-ever Nobel Peace Prize Laureate.
